8to18 is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children, and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. 8to18 does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register as a user.
What Information Do We Collect?
Our goal is to provide you with the information and products and services that are most relevant to you. To achieve this goal, we collect two types of information from you when you use the My8to18 app: personally identifiable information you voluntarily choose to disclose and “aggregate information” about your use of our app that is automatically collected when you use the app.
Personal Information You Choose to Provide
Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are. We collect personal information from you when you voluntarily choose to provide it. In this connection, you may be asked to provide information such as your name, mailing and current email address, your gender, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us. We may ask you to confirm your personal information when you contact our Customer Service department or the school or organization that manages the activities. This will allow us to protect your confidentiality by verifying your identity. Further, if you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We also collect personal information based on the type of activity you are performing on the app. If you become a registered member, when you log in and access your personal My8to18 account, we will ask you to provide your username and password so that we can verify your identity. Similarly, when you organize or share your User Information on the app with others, we may ask for additional information.
When and With Whom We Share Your Personal Information
Aggregate information refers to information your computer or mobile device automatically provides to us and that is not tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the web sites you visited just before and just after our site), the pages viewed, time spent at our Site or on the app, and IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or mobile device whenever you surf the Internet. When you request a page from our Site, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for partners, and for purposes of system administration. We use this aggregated information to determine consumer trends and needs, which allows both 8to18 and our partners to operate more effectively.
Controlling the Use of Your Information
You may review, correct, update, change or delete personal information you have submitted at any time by accessing your account on the My 8to19 app. By default, all of your User Information, including photos, images, and text, are private and can only be seen by you. Unless you explicitly make the User Content available to third parties (within or outside 8to18), others will not be able to access your content. If you share publicly, anyone will be able to view your content.
Our Site takes reasonable and normal precautions to protect our users’ information by utilizing advanced security measures designed to maintain data security and integrity. However, no system is 100% secure, and you should use caution whenever submitting important information over the Internet, whether to our app and websites or to any other. 8to18 assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide.
